WEEKdays Study Essentials

WEEKdays Study Essentials is an after school program for high school girls eager to succeed.

Students learn practical step-by-step study skills, including how to organize, take notes, manage time, and prepare for tests. We teach students the tools needed to focus, establish discipline, think critically, and become independent learners to prepare them for lifelong learning, in and out of school. Sessions are given by university students.

Study Essentials is spearheaded by our wonderful volunteer Genevieve L'Abbe. 

Join us every Wednesday from 4:00 - 4:30pm via Zoom

To volunteer or to register, email Maria at weekdays@kintorecollege.ca.
